How do I manage my central sleep apnea on a daily basis?

If you have central sleep apnea, you should follow your doctor's instructions on a daily basis. This may mean using a device as you sleep, such as CPAP or bi-level PAP. Make sure to use the device as directed. If you have severe central sleep apnea, your doctor might prescribe a medication such as acetazolamide to lessen your symptoms; take your medicine exactly as prescribed. If you are still fatigued by your sleep apnea, use caution while driving or doing other dangerous activities.
